1st Logo
(1990-1993)
[]

Nickname: "City Skyline"

Logo: We see a New York City skyline at dusk. The giant Baker-Miller pink gradient word "CAMELOT" zooms-up from behind the buildings, followed by the words "ENTERTAINMENT SALES", also in Baker-Miller pink, in a smaller typeface.

Variant: On Bruno the Kid, the company name remains on screen for a second after the background fades to black.

Trivia: One of King World's headquarters was based in New York City.

FX/SFX: The zooming words, which are simple 2D animation.

Music/Sounds: The same synth fanfare used in King World's "Spotlights" logo.

Availability: Extinct. This logo wasn't widely seen to begin with. It only appears on two shows: Bruno the Kid and the 1993 Pink Panther cartoon (the one where he talks), which last aired on Boomerang UK.

Editor's Notes: None.
